PLACING AND DESIGN OF LAMPS '
Indirect lights of a new type have
been installed in the large reading
room on the second floor of the new
They are placed just over the book-
cases ,a distance of eight and one-half
feet from the floor. This allows the
reflectors ,which are of the X-ray de-
sign, to be cleaned often, preventing
the dust from collecting on them
which lessens the candle power of the
lights. These lights are placed at in-
tervals of two and one-half feet all
around the room, thus insuring day-
light brightness at all times.
In addition to these lights there will
be lamps on each of the reading ta-
bles. The latter were designed by
Prof. Henry H. Higbie of the electri-
cal engineering department.
Work on the movable scaffolds to be'
used in painting the high ceiling is
progressing rapidly. These are 15 feet
in. width and are very high. The ceil-
ing is in the shape of a half cylin-
der, which makes the painting of it
At each end of the room will be
one of the paintings that were in Uni-
versity hall for 12 years. One of these
represents the works of peace and the
other the works of war. These scenes
were made by Gari Melchers for the
World's Fair in Chicago in 1893.

Hale Hamilton, who will appear at
the Arcade today in "That's Good,"
rose to fame on the stage through his
clever delineation of virile, dymnamic
roles in such productions. as "Get-
Rich-Quick-Wallingfordt,," "The For-
tune Hunter," and "A Pair of Sixes."
His stage success lead the young ac-
tor to the screen and he made his pic-
ture debut with Metro as leading man
for May -Allison in "The Winning of
Beatrice." He was made a star follow-
ing this engagement, his first vehicle
being "Five Thousand an Hour."
"That's Good" deals with the ad-
ventures of a young man who is
thought by his neighbors to be good
ofr nothing and by a band of city
crooks to be an "easy mark." His
amusing philosophy is to take life as
it comes and enjoy it while it lasts.
Mabel Normand will be shown to-
morrow in "ThedPest," which is said
to be reminiscent of her Keystone
days when she threw pies at Charlie
"Captain Courtesy," a Paramount
picture with Dustin Farnum, will be
released as part of the Success Se-
ries. Mr. Farnum has called this one
of his best pictures although it was
made some time ago.
Faire Binney's first venture into the
"movies"~ was in the Paramount-Art-
craft Special, "Sporting Life." Her sec-
ond was as leading woman to John
Barrymore in "Here Comes the Bride."
WINNIPEG PRACTICALLY IN
THROES OF GENERAL STRIKE
Winnepeg, May 16.-Winnepeg news-
papers were forced to suspend publi-
cation this afternoon when the press-
men and stereotypers voted to join the
ranks of some 30,000 union men and
women who have quit work with the
strike of the building and metal trades-
Tonight Winnepeg was without tele-
phone service, street cars, postal de-
livery or collection, newspapers, de-
partment store deliveries and scores
'of other metropolitan conveniences.

Donald Q. Harris, '21E, of Evans-
ton, Ill., has just received official not-
ification from the government stating,
that he is to report at West Point
the first part of next month for phys-
ical examination, the successful pass-
ing of which will give him the oppor-
tunity to enter that military academy
on June 13 as a cadet.
Harris was recommended last fall
as second alternate from the 10th
congressional district of the state of
Illinois. He passed the preliminary
-physical examination in March, and
was exempt, on account of his acad-
emic work in the University, from the
mental test. He began his studies in
the University in the literary college,
but last February transferred to the
engineering college. Though he leaves
-the University on May 29, credit will
be given for his semester's courses.
